Americans should not tolerate the culture of Niqab 

Some Muslim women wear the niqab to avoid being seen or identified by foreign men, foreign men here means all men but their husbands, brothers, and fathers. The Niqab is a sign of a culture that has stopped progressing and revising its main ideas one thousand years ago, a culture that puts women in a place clearly inferior to men. No matter what muslim feminists say, the version of Islam stuck in the past, yet continues to dominate Muslims’ thinking to this day, sees women as and makes them feeble, unequal sex objects that should be protected from the temptations of their own minds and men, niqab is one tool of this protection. Niqab’s Islam completely opposes what the second wave of feminism stood for and the basics of western women’s lifestyle. In fact, it is a culturally hostile foreign element, especially when factoring in the number of women in niqab who see other women as indecent, remember, most of these women are convinced niqab is a staple of Islam, which their understanding thereof is literal and absolute, thus contempt for women not wearing niqab is probably heavy. 

Let’s take a look at Egypt. This is not an analogy as the two countries are radically different, but there is something to consider in what happened here. Egypt in the sixties wasn’t the country you see today, girls didn’t wear hijabs, men and women didn’t religiously abide by what a preacher, who makes thousands of pounds through TV and youtube ads, says on his program, Sheiks had not hijacked the Egyptian critical mind yet, Christians were loved, arts were revered, and feminine beauty was celebrated. Egypt has changed, radically, and the state is the number one guilty party. Cultural transformation is possible. We must reserve the right to favor one cultural element over another, reject some, and defend others using reasoned arguments based on our understanding of what progress is. Taking stances and defending them is a sacred human right. From a universally objective perspective, marrying children and FGM are not bad things, because from a universally objective perspective everything is everything and everything is nothing, it takes vision, culture, and will for a civilization to become and stand.

 Americans should, without violence, take a stand against the culture of niqab as a foreign aggressive expansionist element on American soil. 

God bless America.

  1. Egypt looked that way in the 1960’s because America was supporting the secular regime that had hijacked Egyptian democracy, and that secular regime was reflecting Western values foisted upon Egyptians by both the British and the French.

    Egypt, as well as other parts of MENA, rebelled against this neocolonialism by going back to their Islamic roots. Therefore, the reveiling of Egyptian women is a direct response to American Imperialism.

    The irony of this post is that if Muslims invaded America and forced women to veil, you’d be up in arms. But here you are celebrating the Western invasion of Egypt and their women being forced into Western clothing, and blaming Egyptians for returning back to their religion and religious code of conduct.

    Oh and here’s an image of a Coptic Christian Egyptian woman in full niqab: https://za.pinterest.com/pin/457396905880224767/

    1. No, Egypt looked like that in the 40s and 50s as well, because education was still good and our critical mind was active and healthy. In the 70s, when our education system began collapsing, Islamists, on oil money supported by the state to counter Nasserites, began exploiting lack of good education to push forward a culture of bigotry and intolerance that eventually breeds extremism. And Egyptians were mostly Muslims in the 60s, just not regressive Islamists.

      Oh and I’m not talking about an invasion or an enforcing of anything, I’m talking about a creeping culture and the right to take a stand.

      1. You need to read Dr Leila Ahmed’s book. Yes Egypt looked like that in the 40s and 50s except for the old generation.

        Imperialism caused mortal damage throughout much of MENA. Blaming it on Islamists completely ignores the high levels of corruption in Egypt, the bourgeois nature of The Elite, and the fact that Al Azhar is completely controlled by Sisi’s regime and Mubarak’s regime before him.

        But I bet you’re one of the whining liberal elites who preferred having Mursi’s democracy dismantled and the Army back in control because that served your interests and not the interests of your fellow Egyptians barely scraping by.

      2. Morsi didn’t have to go. There was massive sabotage against Egyptian infrastructure to make him look incompetent.

        Go read about Operation Ajax.

        Your complete reliance on emotions and prejudice makes your argument paper thin.

        You just proved you’re from The Elite draining Egypt dry.

      3. Emotions? I used the closest thing to a physical evidence.

        Our infrastructure and services are as bad or worse now, why aren’t people revolting against Sisi? Egyptians knew Morsi was a foreigner loyal only to the Muslim Brotherhood, heck, he is friends with convicted terrorists.

      4. People aren’t revolting against Sisi? I guess I imagined all those dead people I saw on the news in 2014.

        The only courts who convicted anyone of being a terrorist are the Kangaroo courts controlled by Sisi.

        Again bring facts otherwise we know you’re just spewing hot air.

        Case in point: I wear Niqab and I have my bachelors degree. And you?

      5. There is anti-Sisi sentiment, and its rising, but it’s not because he’s terrorist from a terrorist organization.

        Egyptians have seen blood spilled by terrorism, their blood, after Hassan Banna and Sayed Qutb laid down the literature of takfirism and taqqiyah in their books.

        I wear white pants and I have my bachelor’s degree.
